Visiting El Paso

Often while traveling the idea of a place, or what’s written in a book about it, is far different from the reality when you actually get there.  El Paso is not a place most people living in the North East probably spend a lot of time thinking about.  I certainly didn’t think twice about it…

Nuit Blanche. Illuminus, Boston 2015
